Reasonable.

However, exercise your negotiation skills and 'upper hand' power to cut further 10% as a whole.

Watch out for material 'downgrading' aft 10% cut......you know i know.

Hi bepgof,

My contractor said the price given is very reasonable, no further discount. Somemore, he said the tiles is up to me to select as long as the tiles range is $3.50psf and $3.30psf.

No flowers seller condemns flowers he sells.

Sword seller says his sword can poke through all shields.

Meanwhile, he says his shield the best - no swords can poke through.

Only he knows which is which and what is what.

Reality: he needs to make a living, you want to save some $

Show hand to him, take it or leave it.

You are at upper hand at 'this moment'.

After got your deal, he will be in 'upper hand' - manipulate quality to take back that discounted 10%. Win-win.

Allow no quote items could be 'anything and everything'.

Item 19 - ask him to amend 'solid surface worktop'- 14ft , to ' Indian galaxy granite top'- 14ft with same price.

He will F u and go fly kite.

You now can F him for what is 'solid surface worktop', pen material down.

He then knows you know something that he can't laught within.

Watch out item 6 & 7. Why 'overlay' - intend to stay 3-5 yrs?

Contractor these days like 'short cut', 'clean job', 'quick buck' - hack care what happen 3-5 years later.

My advise: Hack old, replace with new, if intend to stay long. Re-enforce waterproofing at floor-trap areas.

Hey buddy..

Your quote is very cheap when compared to other quotes. For eg, based on my observation and short research..

Solid surface top: $70-120 per ft

Kitchen cabinet: $120 per ft

Paint 4 room whole house 5 color: $1300-1500

Watch out for materials and workmanship. Its a bit on the "very cheap" end I believe.
